Lochside Workshop #3

Super Trainer Jim Wisner & homeowner David Bradway install a door sweep

A couple weekends ago we closed out our first series of 3 workshops in the Lochside neighborhood.  We met homeowner David Bradway at the Durham Farmer’s Market last summer. David was already an energy conscious guy.  He uses  The Energy Detective (know as “TED”) to track his home energy use in real time, and he has two energy tracking software programs on his laptop.  Still, he was interested in learning some new energy saving techniques, and was enthusiastic about opening his home to his neighbors and inviting them to learn along with him.

Clean Energy Durham staff and volunteer Super Trainers got the benefit of watching TED in action.  David got several energy saving projects done in his home, the neighbors shared supplies and support, and neighbors went home and did their own weatherizing projects after the workshops.  One of these neighbors has also volunteered to host the next Lochside workshop, thereby keeping the neighborhood learning going!
